Jacob Zuma gets set for Zimbabwe trip amid rising pressure on him to go
President Jacob Zuma, under mounting pressure to resign, is off to Zimbabwe for a session of the SA-Zimbabwe binational commission on Thursday. The president did an abrupt about turn on Wednesday in the Pretoria High Court to which he had applied for interdict against public protector releasing the state capture report. His legal team informed the full bench that it had received instructions to withdraw the application. Outside the court, the streets rang with the sounds of protests against state capture and calls for Zuma to quit. The Save South Africa campaign gathered in the capital to call for the "overthrow of state capture".
